Weekend Baby Update

Well, his name will end up being Jake if I adopt him and I spent some time with him this weekend to see what his personality will be like.
Turns out at 4 weeks old, they can barely walk much less charm anyone with their huge personalities. Being cute is really all they need at that age.
But Jake is very sweet natured, unless one tries to hold him for too long. He tolerates kisses on his little apple face and tummy very well. He also lets you hold him on his back, unlike his wriggly sisters. He even falls asleep that way.
He mews a little but he's no crybaby.
His little nails are sharp as sewing machine needles but only 1/16th of an inch long, so the scratches he leaves are superficial.
He's the biggest kitten in the litter, one because he's the only male, and two because he absolutely hogs his mama's nipple and will allow no competition until he's nice and full. He's not mean about it; he just does a lot of hip checking and sister-pushing.
His hobbies include: trying to walk without falling over and playing in the litter box by digging, rolling, wrestling, pinning his sisters, having his little tail bitten, trying to figure out who did it, and falling asleep.

I think I may be falling in love.

Sounds like he's already exhibiting some Republican tendencies with that hogging of the nipple and pushing females around. Be careful with that one.

He'll be reared around two large Democratic male kitties, both of whom were also nipple hogs.

I find it impossible to believe all of these terrible behaviors you are attributing to this tiny, edible creature. Stop trash-talking Baby Jake! *nibble*
